Parolee arrested after making and posting video on how to remove ankle monitor with butterknife

Dustin W. Burns, 33, of Springfield, Missouri, on probation after violating a restraining order, was arrested again after he allegedly made an instructional video on how to remove an ankle monitor with a butterknife and posted the clip on Facebook.

“This is how you take an ankle bracelet off,” says the voice in the video, “without breaking the circuit.” From Springfield News-Leader:


In August, the Facebook account posted a video of a man who looks like Burns walking through what appears to be a large marijuana farm with the caption: “Dream come true.”


Court records show several probation violations were filed this summer against Burns and a warrant for his arrest was issued…


Burns was charged this week with tampering with electronic monitoring equipment, a felony, court records say.
